    Pretty sure they just said it wouldn't be going up for preorder

    The exact phrasing was "These two Core class figures are not available for pre-order, but you can find them in-store and online starting this Fall." Seems pretty clear that they aren't going to go up for pre-order.

    Besides, since the launch of Pulse, when has Hasbro ever revealed something and not had it up for pre-order within a few days (at most)? Why wouldn't they have just waited to reveal those figures at this event if they needed to wait before opening pre-orders for some reason?

    Remember the October 2020 fan first Friday, I was so excited to see gnaw, and now after 7 months I better see gnaw.

    It is what I hope.

    Well everything, but according to the updated leaked list, T-wrecks is part of Kingdom line, but exclusive.

    I would have liked they to investigate what I cited above.

    That's correct, there will be ZERO preorders for the Core Class. You have to take your chances at retail. (Not going to be easy, especially with Soundwave.) If they make a solid case of the green dude (can't think of the name) and Soundwave, then sure... But, if they make a mixed case with previous figures and shortpack Soundwave (as they're known to do), good luck.

    I'm not sure why he gets the shaft so much... I really don't.

    Amazon had preorders for the first two core waves, I have no reason to suspect they won't carry wave 3. We haven't seen any official SS86 or Kingdom preorders announced for October or later, that's probably the holdup.

    I know Pulse typically doesn't carry core, and my Walmart hasn't had that price point for Generations for years. It's whatever, I'd rather not drive around anyway!

    No one's saying they won't carry wave 3, we're saying there are no preorders for them. Hasbro's live stream explicitly said no preorders, in-store only. So while Amazon most likely will indeed carry them, they won't offer a preorder for them.

    This is the first, and only, time I can personally recall where Hasbro's people actually said an item won't be available for preorder. They've always made preorders available in the past. I just want you to understand that yes, these two figures will be available for purchase, but they will not be available for preorder. If a store such as TCP or BBTS offers one, that's of their own doing but not Hasbro's. Hasbro's made it clear that they want you to go to a retail location and pick these up.

    In other news, Hasbro also said the only place we're allowed to look for water is the desert.

    I hope this is Hasbro heading the leaks off at the pass for Wave 4. Let's see Waspy and Tigatron!

    Dracorex (which Dracodon and Vertebreak are based on) is a species of dinosaur which may or may not be a misidentified member of a preexisting species

    I hope we see the next wave for Kingdom on Friday. I don't want to wait until SDCC in July or until they leak. Having new figures leaked just isn't as exciting as a reveal.
